    Thanks for your comments Luci, love you new avatar also!
    You do know that Pippi, Emil and the other characters by Astrid Lindgren have shaped several generations of Swedes.

    Hmmm, I only learned that from reading Dragon Tattoo series. I somehow missed out on some good children's books, don't remember them as a child; I didn't see the Pippi movies either. Maybe it's time to catch up now that I am having my second childhood. :cheese:

    Thanks. I'm glad you like the avatar. It's fun to make new ones.

    The cartoon tv series and movies sucks, the "real" ones are much more "Pippi" ;-)

    Title: Matchball

    Random items I have to use:
    - Sandy Hair for Genesis
    - Midsummer Night Dream Hair for Genesis
    - Parkside Box Car
    - V4 Volleyball Poses

    Used also:
    - City Ruins 1
    - City Ruins 2
    - City Ruins 4
    - Skydome from Skies of Reality
    - Amethyst Fantasy
    - Suranian Priest (2? for Genesis)
    - parts of 110.1
    - Sexy Savage Armor
    - Grass by Predatron

    ...I thought just doing a plain "volleyball" scene is boring, so I tried to put it into a "post apocalyptic" world (I just love scenes in post apocalyptic setup):

    I've got a bit of a problem at the moment - I can't see any images on the DAZ Forums! So commenting on recent images is impossible and I don;t know what will happen if I try to post one. Is anyone else having this problem?

    I'm new to the party, but here's what I pulled...
    178. Arinae for V4
    2655. The Backstreets
    2633. Tevireth
    2623. Temple of D'agroth

    Wow. And what was up with the random number generator being stuck in the 2600s??
    Okay... here goes nothing!

    1st pull (been ages since I've done one)

    Queen of Hearts
    The Study Expansion Pack 3
    Veranda Cafe
    Highland Wilderness

    Hmm, this is a bit of a strange mix, but I think as long as I can find a good way to mix the 2 interiors I should be able to come up with something.

    TAG:adacey#1 "Look out behind you!"

    Okay this one gave me a lot of grief and not in the way I'd expect. I spent a lot of time playing with the lighting and experimenting with some different options to get this look. Then I got the whole thing rendered, was happy with the result and went into post, wrapped up the post and was all ready to post this when I realized that I'd completely forgotten to use the Highland Wilderness textures, I'd focused on everything else first and the hero was the last thing to go into place, by then I'd forgotten that was a required item and since I'd used the Highlander clothing a lot before I decided to mix it up, doh!

    2nd pull (hopefully will go faster than the 1st)

    Breaking the house - LA vol.6
    Genesis Creature Creator Bundle
    Michael 4 Base
    Gothic Nights

    Hmm, not too bad of a pull, M4 is a bit annoying since most of my content is Genesis, and having MFD stuff twice in a row is a bit rough, such is life.

    My second pull:

    Title: "I don't think we're in NVIATWAS anymore, Toto..."

    She suddenly realized her Victoria's Secret Armor wasn't going to protect her from THIS mess...

    (Running Poser joke... The cliche, dime-a-dozen, everybody-has-rendered-one-at-least-once Poser scene is "NVIATWAS" -- Naked Vicky In A Temple With A Sword.)

    Other items used:
    Hatchling dragon (DAZ 3D, MallenLane)
    SS Hatchling Maps 2 (DAZ 3D, Silverleif Studios)
    Bootleggers for V4 (BadKittehCo)

    Rendered in Poser Pro 2012. Some textures re-mapped in Photoshop CS6. Vignette, watermark, and DOF applied in PSCS6.

    I think I'm going to just do this all the time -- contest or no contest! I giggled the whole time I rendered!

    And I just now see you've got ALL your content in your list. Heck, I just used my Daz stuff. If I added Rendo and RDNA, this would be ridiculous!! In a good way! *off to compile full list...*

    It's Sunday. I'm feeling orthodox. :P

    Besides, I said I'd TRY for serious. It's not going well so far. That darn Medieval Village has like 8 million props. Blacksmith pincers, a pile of hay, horseshoes... The possibilities are endless.

    And the next (penultimate) draw:

    1207 - Street Mage for Genesis
    1302 - Pharaohs of the Sun for Genesis Male
    1028 - Fantasy Castle Grounds
    794 - Real Emotions for Victoria 3

    Hmm, tricky....

    Win, lose or draw, at least this round of the RRRR gave me an excuse to use the word penultimate. And that's something nobody can take from me!


    This one was a real bugger! I pretty much knew what I wanted to do from the get-go, but I had to do an awful lot of shopping in the PC aisle to get the necessary paraphernalia.

    And let's face it: the lighting sucks! (One of these days...!)

    Also Used:
    Sacred Barge
    Children of the Nile (1 and 2)
    V3 Male Pack
    V3 Morphing Starlet Dress (Twice!)
    Caleb Hair
    Planet .obj ( a freebie from ShareCG)
    Rock Textture by HoboBo (Bo Hammarberg)

    Ken OBanion, the madness continues. I love the toy Skyrider and the guy's goofy smile. The cross-dressing survivalist is a real sweetie! #05 looks like Zues didn't show up for this one. ;-)



    Thanks, Luci! As for #05 - If you remember the myth, Zeus didn't show up for the first one, either! That's how Paris got stuck with the job in the first place. (If you reccall, one of the contestants was Hera, his wife, and whatever else you might say about the old boy, Zeus was no fool. That was more of a no-win scenario than the Kobayashi Maru!)

    And..., as I frequently say to my bartender, 'Last one, one more time!' (And this really is the last one, as in draw #7):

    612 - Spirited Ladies
    1025 - Fairytale Collecton - Prince Charming
    568 - Lisa's Botanicals - Grasses & Flowers
    468 - Mystery Cave with Water

    I think I know exactly what I want to do with this one. Hopefully, it won't require more shopping!

    Oh, BTW - From the Random.org web site:

    Advisory: RANDOM.ORG is currently experiencing slow response times - we apologize for the inconvenience (2012-11-04)

    Guys! We're burying it! How cool is THAT!?

    I've fallen a bit behind on this thread, but thanks for the comments Luci! My laptop isn't letting me see pictures on the boards right now, but my desktop works fine, and from what I've seen there have been some great additions since I was around last. :) Here's me number 5:

    67. DMs Fantasy Bath
    240. Square Cliff
    141. Lisa's Botanicals - Creepy Trees
    58. Desolation Earth - Serpentallica

    TAG:Kaputcha#6

    Title: Stranger
    The bath, trees, and serpent should be pretty obvious; and although they aren't quite so square anymore the two rock formations are heavily morphed (and about 10-15% scale) square cliffs. Also used Mystic Koi.

    I should have stuck with funny. This one reminds me of the bad movies they show on the SciFi channel. Like... Stargate Babe meets Angry Mob Villager and Loses.

    Other items used:

    Well, I hope that image arrived OK - unfortunately I can't see it myself - as I mentioned on Friday, I haven't been able to see ANY images in the forum since October (several other people have this problem too, but I don't know where the problem is as you all are obviously getting your images) - I just hope this gets resolved before the voting starts!
    Thanks to Totte and Luci45 for their kind comments on my previous posts. I'm really sorry I can't make any further comments on all the images posted since October 30th, but I'm truly in the dark about them all!
    In a spirit of optimism, I've made my final pull...

    Wow... That really stinks. :( But, yes, I can see your render, and it's quite clever!

    And I've made pull #3. This one will require some thought. I thought I'd be thorough and add ALL my content to my database. Which may have been a mistake, for two reasons. First, I now know how ridiculously bloated my runtimes are... one should never know how many products they've bought. And, secondly, the chances of me now getting four pieces of content with ANY coherence are slim to none. For example...

    2299. Hot Strike for V4/A4/G4 (Rendo)
    5664 West Park Morgue (DAZ)
    5650 Wedding Dress (Rendo)
    1043 CWRW Pro Textures for Mil Horse Bundle (DAZ)

    Good grief...
